This designation can be locked onto an users "Title" for behavior above and beyond the typical rude behavior and snide comments folks post on the board for a pre-determined amount of time. Its been extremely successful on other boards and tends to put in check ones behavior without having to ban them.

Kind of like states that make you put a bumper sticker on your car stating you have been convicted of a DUI... a modern day version of the scarlet letter.

A little public embarassment is pretty good for the soul and helps keep people's behavior in check. I'm all for it as long is there is some re-evaluation process. Everyone does stupid things and many people learn and change from doing these stupid things.

I'm sure some out there would treat is as a badge of courage, however.
